ACOSTA JR., PETE G. God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So He put His hands around you and whispered, "Come With Me". With tearful eyes we watched you suffer and watched you fade away, although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands put to rest,. God broke our hearts to prove to us that He only takes the best. It's lonesome here without you , we miss you more each day. Life doesn't seem the same, since you went away. Each time we see your picture, you seem to smile and say, "don't cry, I'm in Gods hands, and we'll meet again someday". Love your wife Annie, Richard, Martin, Rudy, Walter, Joann, Mary, and Clarence.

This wonderfully spirited, witty woman was an extraordinary mother, wife, and friend. Her love for all of us was fierce and unwavering, but what we will remember most about her was her love of all children.

We thank her for all of the memories filled with laughter, orange popsicles, purple peeps, "Spoons are for applesauce", bubbles on the patio, soccer coaching, snacks after school with the homework lady, strawberry rhubarb pie, card playing with friends and spending time with those she loved. Grateful beyond words for her gift of unconditional love, we will honor her memory by trying to give the same gift to our own families and friends. We will think of you whenever we feel the sun on our faces and the wind in our hair. You are deeply loved Nana-bo-bana and you will be missed.
